PWC holds 22nd annual conference at historic Stockholm church

The Pentecostal World Conference recently took place in Stockholm, Sweden, where about 1,600 Pentecostal leaders from 74 nations came together for their 22nd gathering.

The conference took place at the Filadelfia Church in Stockholm, which previously hosted the fourth annual event, in 1955. Through the mid-20th century, Filadelfia reportedly could have held the largest congregation in the world.

In his keynote address, Bishop James D. Leggett said the story of Pentecost is that "God can take ordinary people, anoint them by the Spirit and cause them to do extraordinary things."

The New York Theological Seminary is an institution dedicated to multiculturalism, diversity, religious tolerance and social justice. The mission of the seminary is to prepare men and women, from every background, for careers in ministry.
